the news today is that broadcom has made the GPU code for the SOC open source
http://www.reghardware.com/2012/10/24/raspberry_pi_broadcom_soc_drivers_now_fully_open_source/

in theory this makes it possible to utilize the gpu for milkyway
any one sensible enough to have a look ?

When mesa/clover starts to work good, than it would be ehough to take a look. But at this moment one unable to use GPU for calculations even on AMD videocard while using open source driver. Things seems to be changed rapidly, for example a few years ago open source driver for video card was near unusable for graphics acceleration. But open source OpenCL still just a dream. At least Milkyway cant run on top of FOSS video stack even if I push all this stack unstable from git repositore.

On the Raspberry Pi, the Raspbian/Jessie repository contains the Package: boinc-app-milkyway

I'm using the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and all work units that I have received were processed but failed validation.

Is anyone having success with this?

Are there any plans to make BOINC work "natively" (via the BOINC Manager) for this project?

I use the account name "Raspberry Pi - Brian" to run projects on the Raspberry Pi .. but with zero credits, that account cannot post to the message boards.

Thanks!
